Earn Your Degree on
an Executive Schedule

The UW Executive MHA program is designed to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals. Classes meet just three consecutive days a month, Thursday through Saturday, so you can continue to work full time while earning your master's degree. For added convenience, on-site classes are supplemented by online assignments and evening webinars.

Advance Your Leadership Skills

Through a rigorous, competency-based curriculum, the UW Executive MHA program teaches you a variety of leadership skills that can be used to assume progressively more influential positions throughout your career. In class, you'll practice your leadership skills through team-based learning experiences and then apply what you've learned in a capstone project at your workplace or another health care organization. Outside of class, you'll focus on your own leadership development through ongoing, one-on-one leadership coaching through the Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking.

Build a Professional Network

As a UW Executive MHA student, you will join a diverse group of professionals with unique perspectives. You'll participate in dynamic discussions, benefit from peer feedback and develop an extensive network of experienced health care professionals in a wide range of disciplines.
